An alignment involves making adjustments to your Jeep Cherokee's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way Jeep intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Jeep specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1996 Jeep Cherokee, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Jeep. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
It's a good idea to have your Jeep Cherokee alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1996 Jeep Cherokee: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Cherokee dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
On a budget? Jeep Cherokee wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1996 Jeep Cherokee wheel alignment estimate.
